Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Rough Day.

I shouldn't even be able to say that...Rough day. What do I know about a rough day.
I recently changed direction on another blog of mine. It started as a documentation of a website I was trying to create, and mid stream, I found a more deserving cause (of my time). I recently started Because Someone Cares, and it is about kids in need. I've come across stories of some pretty courageous kids and their families. My goal is to find one story per day and to post about the illness or tragedy that has put these children in their current positions in life and the people who support and take care of them. It is very heartbreaking to read about these precious children and their families.
The blog is new, and the early posts are still about the previously mentioned website, but I felt I needed to do something to help these children. Fatal illnesses affect us all, and while I'm not insensitive to the adult illnesses, (My mother passed away from M.S. and my step mother is aflected with it as well) as a Mother, I know that I pray to God daily, that if he has any tragedies in store for my children, he rethink it, and give them to me. I'm sure the Mothers of these children would take the illness on themselves if they could, so I will focus on the children.

My "rough day" is just due to being tired and not having the patience I should with my children. They were tired as well, I knew this, I need to watch what I say, I need to be more creative in getting their help in picking up and NOT creating more messes. I need to spend more time with them doing things and not just "in the room" on the computer or on the phone.
